a journey

drifting down the icy way

wet and cold and shivering

the mice float down the river there

on their little raft.

small and weak in this great world

they make their way to seek their prize

two little mice on a little boat.

the world is out to get them

but they are out to get the world

and so intrepid travelers go.

  1. The image of the two little mice on a raft seeking their prize is just so profound. It has helped me understand my own journeys with first one, then another, on various rivers, on various well-built rafts, at various decades of my life! Thank you!!!
